Kicking off a series of three limited release brews is Goose Island Ten Hills Pale Ale.
The name comes from Bonners Ferry, Idaho Elk Mountain Farms, the exclusive hop grower for Goose Island. The farm started with ten “hills” of hops and has grown to over 200,000 hills.
“As craft beer drinkers’ palates shift toward hoppy beers, we want to highlight the creativity of the Goose Island brewing team and bring something distinctive to the drinker. Among craft beer connoisseurs, we’re already loved and lauded in the IPA style and these three new beers brewed with hops from Elk Mountain Farms will offer our fans even more to love from Goose Island.”
